It's not every day you see a set of 5 antique Paste buttons from the 19th Century, so when we spotted these beauties we snapped them up straight away!
Likely of French origin, these gorgeous accessories would have been sewn onto a jacket or waistcoat during the1800's. Today sets of antique Silver buttons are mainly sought after by specialist button collectors and antique jewellery lovers with a penchant for the rare and unusual... yet they retain their original function. They would indeed look quite spectacular worn as they are, as buttons!
They also present a fantastic opportunity for those of you who are creatively minded, and as we like to say, enjoy "a project"! These sparkling buttons could easily be converted into pendants or into a set of twinkling earrings by a trained jeweller. Or if you prefer, get in contact with us and we'll make your vision come to life!
